Spell Check in Webmail

Hi all,
Can someone please direct me to setting the spell check to British spelling rather than current American spelling?

I don't believe that the spell checker is in web mail - it is the one in your browser - which one do you use

If it works similar to Opera, type anything spelt badly and hit return, then right click on it and if the same a popup menu will appear with the option to choose the dictionary in use and or add new ones

Plusnet Webmail has a spellchecker:
See Personal Settings> Composing messages> Spellcheck options> Check spelling before sending a message.
As far as I can see it is a very basic spellchecker - for instance spell 'honour' incorrectly and it will give you the UK English and the US English options but I don't think you can choose a particular English language dictionary

Thanks Oldjim, I use FF 15.0.1.  I will have a play around with the FF's settings.

@ cyrilclark1
Thanks.  I tried through preferences as you suggested.  You're right.  It does not give me choice of GB Dictionary.

Re: Spell Check in Webmail

Using the Firefox checker is the best as it will check the spelling as you type.
